The bruising fight over the narrow confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is not going away.

Just maybe, argue Katherine Mangu-Ward, Peter Suderman, Nick Gillespie, and yours truly in the Monday editor-roundtable edition of the Reason Podcast, this is the market for political combat at work.
